They say confession is good for the soul!

I offer this challenge to everyone on the "Artful Quilters Web Ring": if your studio is a bit untidy, a bit scary (Halloween is coming soon, you know), then let's scare each other with pix of our studios, bravely posting them on our blogs!!! Then after Halloween is over, we can inspire each other to clean up, organize, and maybe find some stuff that's been missing for a long time...

It's a perfect time - before the mad holiday craziness takes over, and we start making gifts for everyone. Remember, when you do start the major (or minor) overhaul, write down where you put things, so you'll be able to find them. That always happens to me if I don't keep track...I couldn't remember where I had put a beautiful piece of bronze silk/cotton that I purchased at IQF/Chicago this past spring. When I finally found it, I couldn't imagine why I had put it in that place. I made no sense to me!
How about a deadline (sort of) of November 30th?.....

That doesn't look so bad, Julaine. You must have straightened up before you took the picture.

Sounds like a plan to me!! One of my plans after AQT is my annual pull everything out of the room and and put it back.

You're on.

I was so disgusted with mine, I pulled everything out and am in the midst of painting and reorganization. Unfortunately, no before pictures (and they would have been frightening), but maybe I'll creep into the spare bedroom and take a picture of all the junk that got thrown (willy-nilly) in there.

Ok Juliane. I have taken the scary photos (actually the scariest part isn't in the photos... How's that for a hook?)

I will be uploading the photos and posting them on Monday. Then I will be cleaning during the Thanksgiving week.

I can't do it. I just moved into my new studio area -- the old dining area. And it's all neat and clean. Honestly that is far more scarey. Normal is everything anywhere... :)

Okay, Julaine, since I am aleady in cleaning mode, I probably need to join just to keep my feet to the fire. I have posted a few photos of the messy place called my studio, but will do some extras to show the true depth of my disorganization.
